Fermup The Fermented Food Podcast

93: Researching Fermentation

This week’s special guest is Geoffrey Tolle. We talk research and science. We also talk about Geoffrey’s latest fermentation project.

Sources of On-Line Information:

Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge

Open Access.

Journal of the Institue of Brewing

Open Access 2012 and earlier) – Journal of the Institute of Brewing.

Journal of Fermentation Technology

Open Access. Technical but might be helpful.

Directory of Open Access Journals

Open Access to a lot of On-Line Journals. Using the search function is crude but easiest.

National Center for Biotechnology Information

Some Open Access. This provides info on US government-funded papers that are supposed to be public access but there are still kinks. It doesn’t have as many fermentation articles as one might like but it’s helpful. You can set up an automatic search and alert.

Japan Science and Technology Information Aggregator

A Lot of Open Access. A lot in Japanese but still a Lot of Good Stuff that You Can’t Find Elsewhere.

Also, just because a journal is behind a pay-wall doesn’t mean, usually, that you can’t take a look at the abstract for it. If you find a couple of articles that you’re interested in, then your state library or state university library may be able to help you get a copy of the article.

Brewing & Fermentation Textbooks - CRC Press

The CRC Press has a number of very good (and expensive) books on fermentation. You may not be able to afford them but you might be able to borrow them through inter-library loan.
